I really like the ones with the manga background, but there seems to be some small color problems around the lower edges of the letters. Also in the big blue one you can see a faint outline of a rectangle around the gentoo logo. Also the 1280 from Apocalypse isn't 1280, but I'm sure you're aware of that :)

I don't really see "color problems," but the rectangle around the letters that you can barely see is from me bump-mapping that area because bump-mapping the whole image looked bad. However, it's hardly noticable even on my monitor which is super-bright and displays an infinite number of colors.

In the ones I made with the anime in the bg, you have to study every pixel to see it. :wink:

If you could resize the one that was originally called gentoo-blue-ute.png that would be just great.

How are you blending the manga wallpaper with the Gentoo wallpaper?
I'm curious as to how you do that, and how complicated it is.

Thank you. I'm very grateful. Plus it's really a pleasure to look at such nice backgrounds. :)

It's actually very easy to do andrewy. I just paste the other wallpaper onto another layer with the GIMP and then lower the opacity of it. Not too hard at all. :)

Maybe you could have several different colours if it's not too difficult. It would also be nice if there were other sizes available since with 1280x1024 (what I use) you get nasty black borders. But It's great that people do stuff like this. I wish I could. :D


He wants to make your background into a product line of Macs! Run! :D

I am a she which maybe explains my facination for pretty colors like blue, green and brown (or not). Besides shouldn't everybody be able to have a background that fits well with the color of their computer case? ;)

Touché. You have a point there... I'm a firm believer of the background blending in with either the monitor baffle or the color of the rest of the room, though; makes more sense, view-wise.

I often go for the wallpaper going with the theme being used in the DE or WM, but whatever floats your boat.

Someone is already making a bootsplash based on the Matrix wallpaper.

Personally, I use the Infinity one with a transparent Konsole. It's easier on my eyes, usually don't go for the super busy wallpapers...they're ok if you tint the transparent consoles, but I like 100% transparency.

How does one submit this stuff for bootsplash/LiveCD?

Yeah, I was talking about the infinity one for the livecd. I guess you could just submit a bug for it.

The 2004.1 livecd background isn't the greatest IMO, so I'm still using the 2004.0 one as many other people do from what I've read around here. But I think your Infinity one could be a good one for one of the next livecd's.

I have been messing around with povray and came up with a background image that I like (I use it for the grub and xdm screens on my laptop). Here's a link to the image in several formats. Hope you enjoy them.

I've created a new wallpaper and thought I share it to you.

1024x768
1280x1024

It's not really a new creation, it's just a modification of one of my older wallpapers:

1024x768
1280x1024

I hope you like it!
